Small flow volumes? Ideal for our radial compressors.

Our radial compressors include single- and multi-stage process gas compressors, process air compressors and mechanical vapour compressors. 

In the integral version, the impeller is directly mounted on the high-speed shaft. Alternative versions are fitted with intermediate bearings.

FIMA is the acknowledged world market leader in low-volume radial/turbo compressors. This type of compressor is frequently implemented in chemical processing plants or refineries to return some of the flue gas to the process.

Our machines satisfy high standards

The American Petroleum Industry (API) Standards in particular make high demands of the industry. FIMA builds and delivers machines that comply with these specific requirements. Our tailored portfolio of compressors and blowers complies with API 617, 9th edition (Chapter 1, 2 and 3), API 614, API 670, API 671, API 672, API 673 and DIN EN standards. We thus help you to improve your plant’s efficiency and profitability.


Application areas

  • Use as process gas or fresh air compressor in the chemical and petrochemical industry for in-line processing support
  • Use in waste water treatment for air enrichment in sedimentation tanks
